The Inquisitor, by Mark Allen Smith

This is a very strong mystery / thriller.  But it can be difficult to read, as the protagonist is a professional at "information retrieval" - which is a euphemism for torturer.   The graphic scenes weren't over the line horrible, but they were disturbing enough that I'd want to post the warning.

This is a bit of a psychological thriller, as the hero slowly understands more about himself and his childhood.   All the characters are well developed and interesting.

Mr. Smith wrote one of those novels that leave me anticipating a sequel.   I recommend this fine book
